THE first Yardley Gobion Autumn Extravaganza raised £1,300 for the up keep of St Leonard’s Church last weekend.
Despite a brief thunder storm in the middle the dog show organisers say the event was a big success and filled the village hall to capacity.
Helen Westlake, spokesman for the organising committee said: “It was just a mad idea really, we called it the extravaganza because it had all sorts in it, autumn related competitions for children with mis-shapen vegetables and scarecrows.
“We also had a light-hearted dog show for which we had far more entries than expected.”
An auction of the produce entered into the show helped boost fund raising and Mrs Westlake added: “The amount we raised was brilliant considering what a good time everyone had.”
